  1. Using Tapatalk on my iPhone with CAG seems so slow! It has improved since, but still quite unbearable having to wait a good minute or two for things to load. Maybe it's the amount of threads and posts that need to be loaded? In fact, it's that slow that authentication fails and can't load any of my account information. It's a shame I can't use it. A lot of potential and it would mean I would contribute more to the forums if it worked!
  2. I'm glad there are people here, who enlighten present victims of RLP. Personally, I know how scary it can be to receive threatening letters from them. Keep it up! With personal experience, I ignored the letters and it worked. I'm not exactly suggesting that you should definitely try this but only do what you think is right. The suggestion of writing a letter shows that you have tried to negotiate with RLP and is useful if any court action did happen. (I'm not trying to scare you with the courts thing, as it's very unlikely, I hear…) Anyway, I wish you the best in your situation. There are many good people here who will certainly be helpful.
  3. As far as I know, this 'Dishonest Database' that they have can be accessible to their clients. In this case, it will be all those who have paid to have such access like those retailers who pay RLP to deal with their civil recovery claims. Known retailers include TK Maxx, Tesco and Boots (as mentioned in the thread posts on this forum) as well as whatever place who recovered their items from you. I don't really think that anyone knows what data goes on their database (not even sure it's up to scratch in terms of legality) but I suspect it will obviously contain data from any forms you may have (likely under duress) signed such as banning forms with your name, address and date of birth as well as the retailer you were caught in, items recovered and any related costs and values. Might even contain photos of yourself (which may have been obtained without your consent in interview rooms with CCTV footage)! I'm not sure what being an FHS Approved Person would be but it would be unlikely that you will have any criminal convictions (unless you were charged by the Police for any criminal acts with court action). RLP would be far more interested in the civil side of the law anyway, as it's all money orientated. Therefore, you should be fine. Good luck in your situation.
  4. No, I did not contact or reply to them at all for any negotiation. Again, I hope things go well for you, especially when you will talk to your mum about your issue. All the best.
  5. Personally, my situation did involve a wallet at the same retailer but it was an item attached to it (which probably made the whole thing less serious). Through my own experiences, there's nothing really that you can do but wait for the letters, simply ignore them and do not request or negotiate with them - at all. As for the letter appearances, it will definitely come up with the RLP logo in the top right-hand corner addressed to you (if I remember correctly) but there's nothing really stopping your parents seeing the letters neither. Expect the first one to arrive within two weeks or something. You will receive more demands of payment, nearer to the deadline that they suggest you pay. I describe the process as you being 'invisible' with the "you don't exist" type scenario. Hopefully, they'll give up by then. For me, everything took a good two months before they stopped. I know the process will cause anxiety and stress but it'll be over before you know it! I wish you luck in your situation and this forum will give you the help and support you will need.
  6. Just continue to ignore the letters for now. Hopefully, they'll stop coming through the letterbox - sooner or later. As for "may refrain from pursuiting" (should be "pursuing", haha), don't send them anything, including photocopies. That way, they'll definitely have your correct details. Also, thank you for mentioning that bit as it means it is a possible tracking development of current RLP letters and seeing what they're up to now. More people in this forum will shortly come to the rescue. Hope all goes well.
  7. Here's another case of the annoying and irritating fact that security officers think that they have as much authority as police officers do - they don't. I have a feeling that they have been unlawful in some ways, such as the fact that it seems that you were forced back into the store. More importantly, is it true that they did ask you to empty your pockets and literally drop your pants? If so, then you might have a claim in that even police officers have to ask permission to perform what is called a strip search if it is reasonable to do so and only then, it has to be at a police station in a private area and performed by those of the same sex. Security officers don't have this right of authority. The security guard(s) should have done what you asked - that is to call the police and let them sort it out. Just an opinion.
  8. Sorry, I didnt realise I missed that out. They were asking me for the famous but odd £137.50.
  9. carlosc256, I thank you for your comment. As for your question, I think it's been just over two months since the letters stopped.
  10. I haven't received any letters as of since I last posted here in October. However, I am always slightly going to expect that something may turn up in the future, if that day comes… I hope things are going well for you.
  11. nicz, I have sent you a PM and my reasons for sending you one instead of posting here (just in case RLP are roaming around the forum).
  12. My experience has shown me that when signing things, we are pressurised into signing, otherwise the police will be involved. As with RLP letters, I got mine a week after the incident. If you do not pay, they regularly send out letters after the set deadlines about two to three days later. I continued to ignore the letters and since September through to now, I haven't received a single letter since. I hope things go well for you, like it did for me.
  13. I remember seeing this programme. I must agree with the fact that it is annoying that security guards think they have as much power as the police. Not applying this to all security guards but it sounds like that some people failed to make it as a police officer maybe?
  14. With personal experience, ignoring letters worked. In the meantime, I wish you good luck in your situation.
  15. Sounds like a way of threatening people to confess and then get RLP to have a genuine way of conning people… Personally, the police seems to have not been involved otherwise it's most likely you would have received a Fixed Penalty Notice. Just my thoughts. I hope things will be clearer and better soon rather than later.
